Michael Patrick Murphy (May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL lieutenant and the first person to be awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan. He was also the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. His other posthumous awards included the Silver Star and Purple Heart.
The movie was great and honestly gave me a sense of what it takes to be the best. Too often we look at heroes in the wrong type of uniforms. Sports stars, while they can be admirable, are often looked at as gods and heroes for the wrong reasons. Michael Murphy is a hero and if you have young children or neices/nephews bring them to see this movie. It will teach them lessons on how to be men and women of honor.
It is a tear jerker so be prepared…even you tough guy with muscles on muscles!
Cinematic review: It is a documentary and not on the largest budget, for what it is worth it was great. I highly recommend and I rarely say that for a movie.
